#Blogging4Madeleine



I posted last year on Madeleine McCann's 9th birthday its so sad  to be posting again, I feel I cannot utter the words Happy Birthday, instead I will offer my prayers,thoughts,tears and a birthday wish that she will be reunited with her Mum,dad and family!

2013 today is Madeleine McCanns 10th birthday, it should be a day of laughter,celebration, family and friends. Instead its a day when all those feelings of loss will be most keen, the unanswered questions,the prayers that she is alive,more importantly happy and safe. 

So to try and mark this day, bloggers are again raising awareness that Madeleine McCann is still missing and to spread the word worldwide in order to help find her and bring her home.
Madeleline went missing on holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal on Thursday 3rd May 2007, I cannot quite believe its six years.

  1. Far too many missing children without their families. I can't even begin to guess how they must manage to cope.

  2. I cannot imagine how the family are coping. I just hope that she is found safe and well, despite the length of time that has passed.

  3. Apparently there is a British GP who told police about a sexual gesture made by a friend while talking to the father about Madeleine. You can read all about it here.. http://thegaspersstatement.blogspot.co.uk/

    As if that wasn’t bad enough, there is also a couple (part of a group of 9 people) who later identified the father as the man they had seen carrying a child, resembling Madeleine, that night. You can read all about it here.. http://thesmithsighting.blogspot.co.uk/

    And it just gets worse… a cadaver dog and a human blood dog (both British) positively alerted to/in several items/locations all connected to the McCann’s… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EHJjpXii9o

  5. 140,000 children go missing in the UK every year? How many are found again? Wish we had those statistics. My daughter is 10 this week. Last week, when she wasn't home from school at the right time (she walks) I was frantic, with awful thoughts in my head and feeling sicker by the minute. Of course, because Monday was a bank holiday I had got confused and forgotton she had an after school activity on the Tuesday. But what must it be like when your child never comes home- dreadful agony. I feel for the McCann's and others. #blogging4madeleine.

    1. Yes 140,000 is a massive amount, the twitter page tweets them and also updates if they are found, so that is nice to see. My son went missing in a shopping centre once, I was beside myself, he was hiding from his sister he said as a game and she came running to us, we went the wrong way, he did too. It was a absolutely terrifying 15 minutes. I could not imagine the suffering for any of those parents.

    1. Yes I saw that the cleaners who have not been questioned as they were not employed by the complex. Hoping they track them down even to rule them out! Seems strange when the story was all over that they didn't come forward.
